I'll second the bit about turning around - actually I find it *easier* turning a sidecar rig in most circumstances than a solo rig, especially on a hill. (Don't have to worry about the weight of the bike hitting you at a weird angle.) It can be more challenging if you have to push it uphill due to the weight of the sidecar, but the actual turning isn't an issue. If you are parking on a steep slope, you might want to be looking at a machine with some kind of parking brake if first gear won't necessarily hold it in place.

I'll also second the bit about tending not to take the sidecar off - the Burgman rig has a quick release system (two bolts that come out, about as easy as any sidecar can be to take off) but it very rarely gets used.

The Ural can be reliable - just not as reliable as many more modern styled bikes. We took our 2007 Ural Tourist out to both coasts - and it very very rarely left us stranded (before the final engine blowup somewhere around 55,000km)
